Employee Free Choice Act (Card-Check)
The Business Council of Westchester opposes this legislation which would end secret ballots in union elections. If a majority of employees sign authorization forms, or cards, a union would be formed and employers would have 120 days to reach a contract. Failing that, the government would appoint an arbitrator to impose contract terms.
Card-check legislation as originally proposed undermines the long standing principle of workplace democracy and fairness created through the secret ballot. Its elimination will subject employees to intimidation by unions and peers. Binding arbitration will put substantial cost pressures on businesses, many of whom have little or no experience in negotiating key issues such as wages, benefits and worker productivity. The legislation would also impose fines of up to $20,000 per violation, triple back pay and increase the use of injunctions against employers.
